Jamie Redknapp thinks Jose Mourinho’s repute is on a line in a Europa League final after a “disappointing and pedestrian” deteriorate that has been no improved than 2015/16.
With one eye on a strife with Ajax in Stockholm subsequent Wednesday, an under-strength United were hold to a goalless pull by Southampton on Wednesday.
It was United’s 15th pull of a deteriorate and guaranteed they will set a bar record for fewest wins in a Premier League campaign.
While they could still finish a deteriorate with dual trophies and Champions League gift if they win a Europa League, Redknapp was vicious of United after a stand-off during St Mary’s.
“It’s been a majorly unsatisfactory deteriorate in a league,” he said. “When we demeanour during a United group and Jose says he is struggling for players, that group cost about £260m, we would wish a lot more.
They are no improved than final season, they demeanour walking during times, and there is no excitement.
Jamie Redknapp on Man Utd
“I am certain a Man Utd fans would wish some-more – some-more fad and some-more aggressive football. Watching United is tough work during a moment, it was tough during a weekend [against Tottenham] and tough work again today.”
Redknapp also pronounced it was tough to feel magnetism for Mourinho after he has been forced into changes due to damage problems.
“It’s tough to feel contemptible for him, we consider his repute rests on subsequent Wednesday,” he said.
“If they remove it’s been a massively unsatisfactory season. They are 25 points behind Chelsea, they are no improved than final season, they demeanour walking during times, and there is no excitement.
“If they win afterwards it’s been a good season, though if they don’t it’s a vital disappointment, generally with a income they spent in a summer.
“The approach they play is a many ban thing. They get out-worked and out-run by each team. Whatever they do in a summer they need some-more appetite and pace.
“They are a hotchpotch of players and we don’t consider he has a idea what his best group is. Wednesday is so large for him, for his repute with a fans and everybody as well.”
Graeme Souness was equally vicious of United, observant carrying to play some-more games towards a finish of a deteriorate is a cost to compensate for success.
“You understanding with it and get on with it, it’s not a new problem,” he commented.
“I privately never ever felt tired…The some-more success we had a some-more we wanted to play, we couldn’t wait for a subsequent game. The final thing we wanted would have been a manager ceaselessly revelation me we am tired.
“If we go down that highway we are constantly handing out excuses for your players not play well. People contend a diversion has changed, though has it altered that much?
“You are personification a group that has scored 17 goals in 17 home games, and we play dual sitting midfielders, certainly this was a diversion to let a players off a leash.
“It was an ideal event to play some of a kids, though it was another disastrous performance.”
